The course is designed to provide an overview of the organizational structures and business models utilized by current television content and distribution companies. In addition to looking at the basic structure of an organization, the course will also examine the often delicate, unusual and sometimes combative inter-relationship of company divisions, competitors, advertisers and audiences. We will profile the top media companies and the industry leaders/entrepreneurs that have shaped the medium thus far and into the future. Each class will begin with a discussion of current industry.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
